Selling A Business
  • Will my confidentiality be kept?
  • What is the value of my business?
  • When is the best time to sell?
  • Should I consider selling or are there other alternatives?
  • How do I find buyers?

We understand that selling your business is one of the major decisions in your life. Santa Cruz Business Brokers can assist you in the process. We have a team of professionals providing you services from valuation of your business in todays's marketplace through the successful sale of your business at the closing table.

Our number one priority is always your confidentiality. Through ongoing communication and regulated processes we maintain your confidentiality. We prepare a detailed business presentation maximizing the value of your business. Following in-depth preparation, when your business is ready to be marketed we carefully screen and qualify prospective buyers and have them conform to strict confidentiality processes.

When there is a fit that meets your approval we arrange a confidential meeting and assist in working through the negotiations. When the contracts have been signed we work with you and all your professional advisors.
